4 How to Interpret Your Results Citizens' Services (Kim Henderson) In this report, the survey results are presented in two different but complementary ways: as percentages and as average scores. Percentages show the proportion of employees who disagreed, agreed, or gave a neutral response to each survey question. The percentages will help you understand the range of different opinions about a question. Average scores are a single number (not a percentage) that express all the responses to a survey question. We use average scores in the Employee Engagement Model because they are ideal for making comparisons within and between organizations. In order to help you interpret the results properly, we ve provided the following simple description of how we calculated these figures, using a hypothetical survey sample of five respondents. Calculating Percentages For each question, we totalled the number of times each response has been selected by respondents. The five-point scale is then collapsed into three categories in order to simplify and streamline the amount of information that is shown in the detailed tables. We then grouped the responses into one of the three categories, and divided by the total number of respondents, to arrive at the percentages. Strongly disagree 1 Strongly agree Question A 2 people chose a 1 or 2 } } 1 person chose a 3 } 2 people chose a 4 or 5 40% Disagree 20% Neutral 40% Agree 2 WORK ENVIRONMENT SURVEY 2009 BCStats Page 4

5 Citizens' Services (Kim Henderson) Calculating Average Scores To calculate average scores, we followed another two-step process. First, we converted the 5-point scale to 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100 points. Then, we added up all the points and divided by the number of people in the group. This gives us the average score for each question. Strongly disagree 1 Strongly agree Question A person chose a 1 = 0 pts 1 person chose a 2 = 25 pts 1 person chose a 3 = 50 pts 0 people chose a 4 = 0 pts 2 people chose a 5 = 200 pts 275 points 5 people = Average score is 55 As you dig deeper into the results presented throughout this report, you will use percentages and average scores to understand the story being told by the Work Environment Survey results. Please keep in mind that although the scores and results are important, they only provide part of the picture. It is also important to understand how the results and all the parts of the Employee Engagement Model fit together conceptually and in practice. Read each section carefully so you know how to use the information most effectively. BCStats WORK ENVIRONMENT SURVEY Page 5

7 Employee Engagement Model Framework Citizens' Services (Kim Henderson) BC Stats built the Employee Engagement Model using a statistical technique called structural equation modelling. The model has three parts: Foundation: The foundation of the model consists of both executive and supervisory-level management. The foundation supports all the building blocks and as such, has a large impact on overall employee engagement. Building blocks: The building blocks represent the various parts of the work environment that have the greatest impact on employee engagement. Each building block is developed from a cluster of survey questions that define a workplace concept. Roof: The roof of the house, supported by the foundation and building blocks, represents employee engagement. At its core, three characteristics define engagement: job satisfaction, organization satisfaction, and commitment to the BC Public Service. To visually represent the model, the house diagram was designed to show what is most important in the workplace and how all the pieces fit together. As Figure 1 illustrates, the model is complex and should be thought of as multi-dimensional. FIGURE 1. OVERVIEW OF THE MODEL Job Sat Commitment Org Sat Roof: Engagement Characteristics Building Blocks: Workplace Functions Foundation: Management Executive level Supervisory level For visual clarity, the model is shown as a two-dimensional diagram on the next two pages. The diagrams show your work unit and organizational scores, respectively. BCStats WORK ENVIRONMENT SURVEY Page 7

10 Understanding the Engagement Model Citizens' Services (Kim Henderson) Components of the model, including the foundation, building blocks and engagement characteristics have remained the same across the last three years. This means that even with new data each year, the relationships between the pieces of the model remain quite static. This adds to the strength of the model and the confidence we have in it. The house diagrams on the previous pages have been simplified for clarity, but there is actually considerable depth to the model and your results. To gain more insight, we need to explore the model in two steps: Step 1. Explore specific concepts shown in the model. For example, what does the recognition building block really mean? Step 2. Trace the relationships between concepts in the model. For example, how does recognition connect to and influence other building blocks in the model? Step 1. Explore Model Concepts Using structural equation modelling to analyse the survey responses, BC Stats identified questions that express a topic or concept in the workplace. Each group of related questions combines to form a driver, meaning that, through a complex web of relationships with other concepts, it has the capacity to drive engagement upward or downward. Drivers express workplace topics or concepts. These concepts drive overall engagement upward or downward. In the model diagram, we expressed each driver as a single concept, such as recognition. Although recognition can mean different things to different people, two questions were shown to directly influence employee engagement. Specifically, they are: I receive meaningful recognition for the work I do. In my work unit, recognition is based on performance. From the inclusion of these two questions in the model (among the 33 model questions in total), we concluded that meaningful and performance-based recognition has an impact on an employee s level of engagement. 8 WORK ENVIRONMENT SURVEY 2009 BCStats Page 10

11 Step 2. Trace Model Relationships Citizens' Services (Kim Henderson) We should pay attention not only to the engagement model scores, but also to the variety of ways drivers can impact each other. By analysing how people answered the driver questions, we are able to determine the relationships between the drivers. These relationships are important because they help us understand how the drivers work together to impact engagement. Each of these connections flow in a specific direction. The connections link drivers to form over 30 unique pathways that create the architecture of the model. Let s take a look at an actual example of one of these pathways. For simplicity, let s take a look at one of the strongest pathways in the engagement model that contains recognition. As shown in Figure 2, supervisory-level management has an indirect impact on recognition via the staffing practices driver. Comparatively, staffing practices and respectful environment have a direct impact on the recognition driver. Recognition, in turn, impacts empowerment, which then impacts job satisfaction. As one of the defining characteristics of engagement, job satisfaction impacts both organization satisfaction and commitment. FIGURE 2. ONE PATHWAY IN THE MODEL: RECOGNITION Commitment Job Satisfaction Organization Satisfaction Empowerment Recognition Respectful Environment Staffing Practices Supervisory-level Management BCStats WORK ENVIRONMENT SURVEY Page 11

12 Citizens' Services (Kim Henderson) The relationship between supervisory-level management and recognition makes sense intuitively. While recognition can take many forms and come from different places, supervisors are well-positioned to provide meaningful recognition for an employee as supervisors are typically closest to an employee's work. Similarly, we can understand the relationship between staffing practices and recognition. Promotions based on job performance are a powerful form of recognition. Staffing actions within a work unit and organization, conducted through a fair and merit-based selection process, can send a strong message about how managers and supervisors recognize their employees. Working in a respectful environment also impacts recognition. Employees feel more recognized in an environment that is healthy, diverse and free from discrimination and harassment. Drivers work together to impact engagement Recognition, in turn, plays a role in empowerment. When people receive meaningful and performance-based recognition, they are more likely to feel empowered with their work. When recognized and valued, employees are more likely to feel they have the opportunities and freedom to provide input, make decisions, and be innovative. Empowerment has a direct connection to job satisfaction. Those individuals who feel empowered with their work tend to have greater job satisfaction. They are more satisfied with their jobs because they are presented with opportunities to influence outcomes in their work by making the decisions necessary to do their jobs well. People who are satisfied with their jobs tend to be more satisfied with their organizations. Those who are satisfied with their organizations tend to be more committed. People who are committed tend to be satisfied with their jobs and thus, are more engaged. Conversely, these characteristics can also spiral downwards in a poorly functioning work environment. This example, using one pathway, provides insight into how you may interpret and act on your results. It is acceptable to isolate a group of drivers in order to focus thinking in one area, as long as it is recognized that each pathway is also connected to others. Organizations are complex as complex as the collection of individuals that make them up! Therefore, each unique work environment requires a tailored set of responses. The next section turns to putting your results together to uncover these unique stories. 10 WORK ENVIRONMENT SURVEY 2009 BCStats Page 12

13 Citizens' Services (Kim Henderson) Putting it all Together As a final step, it is important to understand how to put all the results together. To illustrate, let s look at another example. Since the questions in the table below all have an average score of 60, we might initially conclude that the responses to all three questions are equivalent. However, the distribution of responses within each of the three categories tells a very different story than simply looking at the average score. Innovation is valued in my work. Work is distributed fairly in my work unit. I have the information I need to do my job well. Average PERCENTAGES Score Disagree Neutral Agree 60 20% 30% 50% 60 40% 10% 50% 60 10% 60% 30% The first question shows a typical distribution of responses, where one-half of the respondents agreed with the statement. In the second question, opinion is quite polarized as most people either disagreed or agreed. In the third question, there are a large number of neutral responses. This tells us that while people did not actively disagree with the question, there may be reasons why they could not fully agree with the statement. Thus, neutral responses are also worthy of attention. Summary of Your Driver Results The following table lists all the survey questions that underlie each driver in the model these are referred to as the model questions. For each question, we have provided the average score and percentages. TABLE 2.

16 Citizens' Services (Kim Henderson) Workplace Change and Engagement In the last two cycles of the Work Environment Survey, several questions measuring the amount, type and impact of workplace change were asked. The following analysis is for the BC Public Service overall. Overall Trends in the BC Public Service Moderate Amounts of Change Result in Highest Engagement Within the last year, organizations have experienced different types of workplace change, including ministry name changes and shuffling of work units. It was found that the amount of workplace change an employee experiences has a minimal level of influence on overall engagement. In general, it was observed that employees seem to value moderate levels of change. Those who reported at the extreme ends of the scale (either none or substantial change) exhibited lower engagement scores than those who experienced less extreme amounts of change. Engagement by Perceived Impact of Change How an employee perceives the impact of change was found to affect their level of engagement. It was observed that employees perceptions on the impact of workplace change are divided, where approximately equal proportions of employees perceived the change(s) that occurred to be negative, to have no impact, or to be positive. As illustrated in Figure 3 below, a clear linear relationship exists between an employee s perceived impact of change and their level of engagement. On average, for every increase in the perceived impact of change (e.g., from negative to no impact), there is an average increase of 10 points on engagement. FIGURE 3. ENGAGEMENT BY PERCEIVED IMPACT OF CHANGE 100 Engagement Very Negative Negative No Impact Positive Very Positive Impact of Change It was interesting to note, that despite the amount of change this year, the overall trends remained unchanged when compared to last year. These findings, in combination with an improvement in the executive-level management driver suggests that executives and senior leaders overall are effectively managing and supporting staff through this year of change. 14 WORK ENVIRONMENT SURVEY 2009 BCStats Page 16

18 Citizens' Services (Kim Henderson) Next Actions and Considerations While changes or improvements at the highest level of an organization can and do make a difference to employee engagement, the most important changes happen at the local level, within work units and between people. Since there are different needs within each work unit, there is no single solution to increasing employee engagement. The lack of a single solution should not be viewed as a limitation, but rather as an opportunity because it means there are many effective actions or changes that can be used to increase engagement. It is important to keep in mind that the people within each work unit are experts in their local environments. For this reason, employees often know the most appropriate solutions for their circumstances and can assist in developing suitable plans of action. By involving employees in planning, you will not only arrive at fitting solutions, but you will also be empowering them to make a difference. There are four actions that can be undertaken in any organization or work unit to help build employee engagement. 1. Work through the results There is a lot of information in this report. As you work through the report, take notes, write in the margins, or draw diagrams. The more you can engage with the results, the better you will understand the employee engagement concepts and relationships. 2. Use the results to start conversations Discuss the results with your colleagues and/or your team. Encourage people to explore, think, and debate. What do these results mean for your organization or work unit? Do these results truly reflect how people feel about their work environment? What would you like to know more about? 3. Make changes strategically Inaction can cause organizations to stagnate, while change executed too hastily can have a boomerang effect. Think carefully about short and long-term actions. Be patient. Successful changes need time. 4. Support each other through change This is sensitive material, but it has the power to transform. People need consistent support to make change happen and to be comfortable with the changes. This applies to employees, managers, and executives. 16 WORK ENVIRONMENT SURVEY 2009 BCStats Page 18

21 Appendix A Citizens' Services (Kim Henderson) APPENDIX A Detailed Survey Results This section presents the results of all of the survey questions shown as percentages (Table 6), and as average scores (Table 7). Results are based on those employees who expressed an opinion. Percentages may not sum to 100%, due to rounding. Since work units change from year-to-year, it is not recommended that work unit results be compared across years. For this reason, previous years work unit results are not provided in this report. In both Table 6 and Table 7, the column labelled Linkage to Model identifies the questions that form drivers or characteristics within the Employee Engagement Model. In Table 6, the column labelled Difference shows whether the percent agree category differs meaningfully between your work unit and your organizational results, where: the ( ) arrow shows increases of 5 percentage points or more than your organizational results the ( ) arrow shows decreases of 5 percentage points or more than your organizational results While the column labelled Difference highlights the changes in the percent agree column, it is also important to look for changes in the percent disagree and percent neutral columns in order to fully interpret the data. In Table 7, the column labelled Compare to shows how many points your work unit scores differ from your organization and from the BC Public Service overall. Rather than an arrow, this table displays +/- differences between the scores. BCStats WORK ENVIRONMENT SURVEY 2009 A-1 Page 21

36 Appendix C Citizens' Services (Kim Henderson) APPENDIX C Data Collection Methodology Administering the Survey BC Stats distributed the 2009 BC Public Service Work Environment Survey to all regular and auxiliary employees who were not on long-term leave and who were directly employed by a ministry, exempting agencies, boards or commissions. The 2009 survey is the fourth cycle of the Work Environment Survey. This cycle of the survey was administered between April 6-29, The vast majority of employees received an internet-based survey. A small proportion of employees who do not have access to the internet at their workplace were sent a mail survey. To allow more time for mailing, the mail surveys were sent to employees on March 25, All mail survey recipients were also provided with the option of completing the survey online. Confidentiality During survey administration, employees received personalized invitations and reminders. All survey responses were encrypted during submission and stored on a secure server accessed only by select members of the BC Stats survey administration team. All BC Stats employees are sworn under the Statistics Act. Each response was coded with a confidential number, which allows BC Stats to attach demographic information, such as organization, work unit, age, years of service, and occupation. No names or contact information are stored with the responses and only aggregate results are provided in reports. All information collected in the survey is protected by the Statistics Act. Individual responses or information that could identify an individual cannot be disclosed to anyone. A-16 WORK ENVIRONMENT SURVEY 2009 BCStats Page 36
